Pigskin Picks NFL Week 8
I noted last week that even mentioning being on a hot streak was going to anger the betting gods… It did. But they did allow me one win. So not a total loss. I’ll try to build on that generosity in my Pigskin Picks NFL week 8 write up.

Last Week’s Record: 1-2. Overall Record: 11-10
Patriots @ Dolphins MIA – 9.5
I love the Dolphins in a bounce back game against the New England Patriots. They’re pissed after getting roughed up in Philly on National TV last Sunday night. The Pats are travelling to Miami, a city they’re struggled in even with Tom Brady. They’re also coming off a last second win against another division rival last week. This screams let down game. Miami rolls and covers the big number.
PICK – Miami
Vikings @ Green Bay MIN -1.5
I’m surprised by this line here. It seemed like the vikings found something last week in their win against the 49ers. This week they head to a stuggling Green Bay team. QB Jordon Love has not looked good in recent weeks. These are two teams going in opposite directions, and it’s not a difficult to play mid-December game at Lambeau Field. I’ll take Kirk Cousins and the Vikings to begin to gain a little steam on their way to a just over .500 season finish.
PICK – Minnesota
Eagles @ Commanders PHI -6.5
The last time these teams played I made the mistake of forgetting that NFC East games are always close. I should learn from my poor choice in early October. Alas, I will not learn. This Eagles team is gelling nicely. Howie Roseman just sured up the secondary by trading for safety Kevin Byard from the Tennessee Titans. Howie and Tennessee love working together. Last time it was for a back bench receiver named AJ Brown. Hasn’t done much in his time here. This time the Eagles gave up Terrell Edmunds, a 5th and a 6th round draft pick for a 2 time all pro, 2 time pro bowler, and former NFL interception leader. Are you kidding me?! The best thing Terrell Edmunds did in his short stint in Philly was go to the Phillies playoff game with D’Andre Swift while mic’d up.
I will not learn my lesson from the last game against the Commanders. Eagles win easy, cover the 6 1/2 and move to 7-1.
PICK – EAGLES
